Feel like I'm losing my mind here you guys throw chemical terms around like I throw crown molding up. I am anxious to take the next step, just not sure what it is. I checked my red soaked channel tonight, nothing doing it looks exactly the same. Not sure wtf happened but somehow, someway, my cyan packed test channel got cleared clean as the day it was born. Maybe this mansion has ghosts.. Tonight I repeated the same exact soak, only this time in the clear fluid. Maybe that was it.
Alan that supplier of the X-100 or whatever it was called, they denied me. It was a chick on the phone, they always deny me. So I did some poking around google tonight, as I really want to keep this ball rolling here, and found an interesting thread written by a German guy a couple of years ago who by accident found a great way to clean dried pigment ink. It was a German made product designed for food service cleaning. Turns out 3M sells a similar product. it's kind of expensive - cheapest I can find is on amazon, it's $80 for 2liter bottle. But whatever, if it works...
It's ingredients are, among other things I imagine, include ETHYLENE GLYCOL ETHYLHEXYL ETHER which are also apparently found in inkjet inks.
So what do our resident chemists think, please?
